Troop News & Upcoming Events
Our troop holds several open house events for potential applicants to meet and experience Troop 126. These usually take place in November and December. Check our website for details when those months draw closer.
We accept applications for new scouts starting in December for possible onboarding the following March. The end of February is typically when Arrow of Light scouts bridge from the Cub Scouting program. Priority is given to those scouts who have earned their Arrow of Light or are bridging from a Cub Scout Pack.
We have a limited amount of openings each year. As such, not all applicants may be accommodated. We encourage you to pursue your love of Scouting either with Troop 126 or another troop in the area, such as Troop 2021G (San Ramon) and 36G (Danville). You can locate a Scouts BSA troop near you by clicking this link.

More Camping??? You got it!!! We have put together another fun, one night camping trip just down the road at Sugarloaf Open Space in Walnut Creek. The point of this campout will be to cook, eat good food and hang out together. This is a great opportunity to earn another camping night for your 20 nights needed for your Camping Merit Badge. And if you don’t need to cook, we need lots of scouts to come eat! So join us!!!
If you want to be a cook, please reach out to the OSPL & Mr. Lannus for approval. You will be responsible to lead menu planning with your patrol/cooking group and cook for your patrol at the campout.
Start Date: 09/01/23 4:00 PM

Troop 126 has been invited by Yosemite National Park to perform a conservation service project. We'll work with rangers to collect native seeds from the beautiful Tuolumne Meadows, for later use in habitat restoration projects throughout the park.
After our service project, we'll have a whole day to explore the high country of Yosemite. Options include...
* easy hiking to pristine alpine lakes at 10,000', where we might see deer, marmots, frogs and more
* visiting Tenaya Lake for swimming, fishing, kayaking, or just relaxing on the beach
* epic views from the summit of Cloud's Rest - a challenging hike (satisifies Camping MB #9b1)
Other Scouting requirements/awards:
* six hours of conservation service
* three nights of camping
* many cooking opportunities
* scouts who've participated in a prior Yosemite service project will earn the Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger patch
Minimum age 12. (NPS requirement)
